Big prizes in Toogoolawah police charity push

WHEN they are not protecting the community, the Toogoolawah police are working hard to organise their charity days.

Held at the end of the month, the annual golf and bowls days raise money for Police Legacy as well as the local community.

Toogoolawah police officer-in-charge Sergeant John Cumner said that during the past six years the days had raised about $12,000 for Police Legacy.

This year the other half of funds raised will go to local schools to put towards their holiday programs.

"There are lots of ways to get involved and it is just about a worthwhile cause and doing something together as a community," Sgt Cumner said.

Sgt Cumner said the level of support towards the days had been great, with many local businesses major supporters of its raffle.

This year the raffle prizes include a four-day horsemanship course with Ken Faulkner's Australian Horsemanship, a tandem skydive with Ramblers Toogoolawah, Nike football boots signed by Justin Hodges and Sam Thaiday, and a hot-lap voucher from Queensland Raceway.

Tickets for the raffle can be bought from the Toogoolawah police station from 9am to noon, as well as on the charity days.

To attend either of the charity days, contact the Tooogoolawah Golf Club or the Toogoolawah Bowls Club.
